So Round 1 went pretty much according to plan depending on who you speak to. According to my Superbru is went 100% according to plan. :)

This weeks match ups will be a little easier to predict although some pundits are expecting a nailbiter in the England v Italy clash. :shock: Supposedly the favourites for the title are France, my money would actually be on Wales or England at the moment. With the inexperienced side that England has they will only get better every week.
